Path of Exile or Torchlight 2?

Same genre but totally different games.

Can't really compare the two games like you can compare Torchlight to Diablo.

I personally really like the skill system for Path of Exile and the darker tone that actually evokes a better feel of DIablo II than Diablo III did. The possibilities of builds in Path of Exile are endless with their skill system, it's quite great.

I love Torchlight, but I'm going to have to say Path of Exile for long term enjoyment. It is an MMO after all. And Grinding Gears is planning to add new contents/Acts consistently

Torchlight 2 for me, but I will likely play Path of Exile tons aswell :)

Oh, didn't know you hung out here, Ryyaann.

I want to say that PoE has more long-term potential, but who knows. At least for the moment, I'm totally hooked on TL2.

Just got my Kiwi bird before the open beta starts, though, so I'm gonna jump back into PoE soon and see how it's grown.
Playing: Torchlight II, Tales of Graces f, Diablo III

did D3 get boring?

Been in the closed beta for PoE
Its really indepth, is fun for the hardcore crowd that like to have fun with unique builds

Is fun for both hardcore and non hardcore fans (not talking about permdeath)
but imo it gets stale after abit, so i need to take breaks for a while in between plays

Id have to say they are both evenly matched though.
Pm me for my psn

TL2 = Casual fun with modding for more casual and possibly unbalanced fun

PoE = Secure, competitive, and hardcore
ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

The only non-speculative answer: Too early to tell for certain.
It launches out of closed Beta I believe this Wednesday.
If you don't like what a gaming company is trying to force upon you and the market, don't buy that company's games.
Cruel DRM can only flourish if you let it.

i believe PoE has the original diablo feel, with a lot more freedom then this game has, but as a more casual friendly, and easily moddable game, torchlight 2 is superior, its just a choice of what you want to do.

The gameplay differences are mainly a matter of taste- TL2 is faster and more casual whilst POE is slower and tougher.

The only main advantage of POE over Tl2 is atmosphere- POE's is just brilliant, I can't think of a good analogue but it always feels like a doomed slog into a black and terrible abyss.
